Was the girls' rendition of Shoutout To My Ex not all it seemed?

Little Mix thrilled fans by unleashing feisty new track Shoutout To My Ex on Sunday night’s X Factor but certain aspects of their performance bothered some viewers…

The girls were accused of MIMING during the energetic rendition and it caused quite a commotion on Twitter, with some suggesting the ladies’ lip-synching was pretty poor.


Did Little Mix just expose X Factor’s Honey G’s BIG secret?

‘Little Mix doing the worst miming I’ve ever f***ing seen,’ one observer Tweeted, whilst another said: ‘Little mix are so s**t at miming’

Yep, this definitely got people talking…

Despite the outcry about Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwill allegedly miming, some fans defended the group against the accusations.

‘isn’t it 2016? why do people still think little mix are miming on stage?’ one Twitter user wrote.

In fact lots of the band’s admirers couldn’t stop gushing about their performance.

‘your performance was absolutely incredible, i’m so proud of you girls,’ one comment read.

There’s been no comment from Little Mix about the miming allegations but they certainly seemed to enjoy their set.

‘It felt so good to be home tonight… where it all started! Thank you @TheXFactor as always xjesyx,’ Jesy Tweeted from the band’s account after the show.

The release of Shoutout To My Ex comes at an exciting time for the group. Not only is their fourth album on the way next month but they’re also about to bring out their own book which details the highs and lows of their lives over the past few years.

A sensational excerpt from the Our World tome has already proved juicy as it features Perrie revealing how her relationship with former fiancé Zayn Malik ended last year – and it goes AGAINST his version of events.

‘It was horrible, the worst time in my life,’ she explains. ‘A four-year relationship, two year engagement ended by a simple text message. Just like that.

‘Even though things in my career were going really well, it was incredibly difficult for me.’

Yikes. This comes despite Zayn claiming he DIDN’T dump Perrie by text when they split last summer. Awks all round…
